Job Description

We believe in the power of small businesses. They have the single biggest impact on our economy and communities. But accessing the finance to bridge today’s funding gaps and fuel tomorrow’s big ambitions is a constant challenge.

At MarketFinance we solve these challenges by taking the friction out of finance for businesses and through our embedded partnerships. Since 2011 we’ve pioneered smart technology to give these businesses access to the right finance, faster and at affordable rates.

As a team, we’re united by our obsession of understanding what our customers are up against and supporting them at speed. We’re looking for passionate people who want to drive innovation, so businesses can fund the small steps, the giant leaps and everything in between.

We recently raised £280m in debt and equity funding to grow our digital lending and embedded finance products in 2022. Read more about it on TechCrunch here.
